We know it's possible to power a pretty killer retro game console with a Raspberry Pi. It turns out that if you're looking for something similar on a BeagleBone it's just as easy with BeagleSNES.
As the name suggests, BeagleSNES is all about the Super Nintendo, but the setup is incredibly simple and it works really well. Like the Raspberry Pi build, all you'll need to do is download an image and drop it onto an SD card. Then, just throw on your own ROMs and you're good to go.
The real plus? The BeagleBoard is insanely fast and boots within a few seconds so you can get your game on right away. Head over to the BeagleSNES site for a guide to make it for yourself.
